PH991 – National Accounts Manager – Leading UK Foodservice brand


REWARDS: Negotiable, Company Car and company benefits


Excellent Senior opportunity with a market leading, globally recognised foodservice manufacturer


THE COMPANY:
We are currently one of the leading pizza manufacturers across UK and Europe.
Established for over 100 years we have continually been at the forefront within both the retail and foodservice sectors and are recognised as a market leader in our field.
Our retail presence has resulted in our brands being highly recognised across the UK and are known for the high quality and diverse range of our products.
Strong emphasis on NPD allows us to continually work with innovative and trend setting products within the range.
Our Foodservice division has demonstrated continual growth in recent years and we are excited about the potential of our brands within this sector.
We have strong existing relationships with many clients across leisure, education, healthcare, pub groups and sporting venues and work closely in partnership with foodservice wholesalers across the UK to bring our product to market.
Due to continued expansion of our team we are seeking to recruit professionals who share the same passion for our brand and would be enthusiastic to share our vision to continue as leaders in our field.

THE ROLE:
This position is a fantastic opportunity to work as part of our successful and established National Accounts sales team.
You will focus on end user foodservice accounts in order to develop turnover through effective promotional and sales activity.
The scope for our brands is extensive, and as a result you will manage accounts across the foodservice sector, including leisure, pub chains, education, healthcare and contract catering.
Although the position is predominantly account management focussed, you will also be responsible for working towards new business targets.
Our brand is well recognised across the foodservice sector so most contract catering managers and head chefs you deal with will be familiar with the brand.
However, the successful candidate will be expected to work effectively to deliver new concepts of how to utilise our product range within catering outlets in addition to implementing new product lines and promotional activities.

THE APPLICANT.
We are seeking to attract sales professionals with field sales experience within the foodservice sector.
• Candidates must have a proven track record in field sales selling to the foodservice sector at buyer level.
• Candidates with experience with foodservice wholesalers or foodservice manufacturers will be equally of interest.
• Candidates must be structured, with a proven track record of achieving sales targets in addition to an autonomous, self starting approach to sales.
• Candidates must be strong team players with advanced relationship building and communication skills.
• Candidates must be experienced at selling at head chef and contract catering manager level.

This position presents a fantastic opportunity for an experienced foodservice sales professional to develop their career with a genuine brand leader.
